Nightmare Be Thy Name
(Denner / Diamond)

Master... You know I never pray 
Master... Nothing can keep you away 

Chorus: 
Nightmare be thy name, Nightmare be thy name 

The dreams... They always do come true 
Second sight, and I don't want to know 

Chorus 

You got to stop this game... Before I go 
In-sane... You drive me insane 
You would follow me straight to the grave 
And beyond... Oh yes you would 

SOLO: Sharmann - Denner 

In Hell, I see the fate of others 
Break the spell, this night has been on forever 

Chorus 

You got to stop this game... Before I go 
In-sane... Before I go insane


Angel Of Light
(Diamond)

I have seen Him there 
Master of Light, Master of the night 
Master of all the things that shine 

Chorus: 
Oh I believe... 
I believe in all that I have seen 
And I have seen the Angel Of Light 
I have seen the Angel Of Light... Lucifer 

I have seen Him there 
Deep down where the Devils dwell 
Deep down in the darkest well 

Chorus 

I will make a second deal with the Prince Of Light 
Never will break the Oath I gave that night 
Shine in all your glory, shine your light on me 

I have seen Him there 
Deep down where the Devils dwell 
Deep down in the darkest well 

Chorus


Witches' Dance
(Diamond)

Just like a demon's eye 
The moon was dancing on the blackened sky 
In my sleep nothing is real, dreaming... I'm dreaming 
I can feel the shadows lurking 
I can feel them closing in 
I can hear their evil chanting 
This is not a dream for a king
 
Chorus: 
Dancing the Witches Dance... Dancing the Dance 
Dancing the Witches Dance... Dancing the Dance 

Cold hands, leading the way 
Through the woods and into the night 
Outside nothing is real, dreaming... I'm dreaming 
I can see a fire burning 
Hooded shapes are all around 
I can see a throne of silver 
Thirteen we are in all 

Chorus 

Before the Goat Of Mendes... We all must take our turn 
Into the magic circle... Where still the fire burns 
We're spinning round and round... Until one takes a fall 
The fallen one will not return, the fallen one must burn 

Just like a demon's eye 
The moon is dancing on the blackened sky 
I'm awake but nothing is real 
Dreaming... Not dreaming 
I can feel the shadows lurking 
I can feel them closing in 
I can hear their evil chanting 
This is not a dream at all 

Chorus 

I wish this was only a dream... A dream 
Within a dream 
Dancing the Witches Dance 
Dancing till Death


The Mad Arab
(Shermann / Diamond)

PART ONE: THE VISION
The son of a shepherd, Abdul Alhazred 
Traveling in the mountains, the mountains to the east 
One night before him, there stood that giant rock 
3 symbols carved in blood 
He built a fire at its root 
To protect him from the wolves... 
The Mad Arab... He would understand 
The Mad Arab... It was in his hands... 
Later that same night, awoken by wolfen's cry 
The Arab cold with fear, saw the rock began to rise... Rise 
The son of a shepherd, Abdul Alhazred 
Shivering he saw Them coming, the mountain's evil priests 
Black robes came together, around the floating rock 
3 symbols in the dark 
They all started chanting ancient songs 
It was prayer in unknown tongue... 
The Mad Arab... He would understand 
The Mad Arab... It was in his hands 
Daggers held high to the sky 
The chanting had turned to screams 
From the pit where the rock had been 
8 snake-like monsters came 
And the priests burned in red 
And the priest had turned their heads 
The blood running from their chests 
Had the Arab scream in horror... Giving himself away 
The Mad Arab... He would understand 
The Mad Arab... It was in his hands 
Run down that mountain side, oh but they had seen him 
The priests had caught his scent 
Running faster... They're chasing him 
Can't go no faster... They're still behind 
Aaaah NO!!! They're closing in... 
...TO BE CONTINUED...


My Demon
(Diamond)

This house is full of hate, this house is full of madness 
This house is deep insane, this house was never mine 

Chorus: 
Deep in the dark you will find us 
DEMON and I we are both deep inside 
Yes My DEMON and I we are mine 

All of the deadly kisses, all of the sick, sick, sickness 
All of the broken mirrors, it's here to stay forever 

Chorus 

Come along... Come along, meet 
My DEMON... DEMON... My DEMON... DEMON 
The poison deep within, I can't let HIM out again 
The dark stains on the floor, they won't come off anymore 
So here we go again, digging the knife in 
Who will be next? Who will be our next guest? 
The dark stains on the floor, they won't come off anymore 
Who will be next? Who will be our next guest?

I hate that GOD damn cellar, I wish I never went there 
It always was and will be, I cannot make it go away 

Chorus

Come along... Come along, meet 
My DEMON... DEMON... My DEMON... DEMON
The poison deep within, I can't let HIM out again 
The dark stains on the floor, they won't come off anymore 
So here we go again, be my guest!!!


Time
(Diamond)

Minutes and seconds are passing us by 
Minutes and seconds are passing us by 
Time... Time 
Minutes and seconds are passing us by 
Time... Time 
Time... Time... Time is always passing by 
Doesn't matter where you are 
Time is passing us by 
What a beautiful moment 
If you're willing to trade 
Then I'll give you a moment of mine 
Give you a moment of mine 
Minutes and seconds are passing us by 
Minutes and seconds are passing us by 
Minutes and seconds are passing us by 
(Time will never stand still) 
Minutes and seconds are passing us by 
Minutes and seconds are passing us by 
(Time will never stand still) 
Time... Time... Time is always passing by 
Doesn't matter where you are 
Time is passing us by 
What a beautiful moment 
If we took it away 
We could use it on some other day 
Use it on some other day 
Time is here, Time is now 
Time is here, Time is now 
Time will kill... Time will heal 
Time will come and go away 
But time will never stay... Time will kill 
Time will heal... Time will kill 
Minutes and seconds are passing us by...


The Preacher
(Shermann / Diamond)

You believe in Heaven 
You believe the Devil is here 
When you ring your demon bell 
You think I'll en up in Hell 

Chorus: 
Oh yeah you're the Preacher 
You're the Devil 
You're the Preacher 
Hiding in the Underworld, that's you 
I can't wait to see your final show 
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I'm gonna miss you so 
I believe you're crying 
You're not the only one 
Have you ever seen the light 
I bet you're scared of the night 

Chorus 

I can't wait to see your final show 
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I'm gonna miss you so 
Oh Yeah You're the Preacher 
Yes... You're the Devil 
You're in the fire 
You're such a liar 
If you had a soul to sell 
I bet you'd end up in Hell 

Chorus 

I can't wait to see your final show 
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I'm gonna miss you so


Lady in Black
(Diamond)

On a magical misty morning 
I was standing in the Autumn rain 
Suddenly the birds fell silent 
Would I ever hear them sing again... 
Hear them sing again... 
Without a word of warning 
I saw a shadow in the Autumn rain 
Just like in my nightly dreams 
The Lady In Black had come again... 
The Lady had come again... 
Begging me to follow her into the misty rain 
Begging me to follow her into the no more pain 
Her eyes were hypnotizing 
Burning deep inside my brain 
The Lady In Black was here now 
She was here to take me far away... 
Take me far away... 
"Follow me to the other side" 
Through the tunnel of light we travel, fading away 
Through the tunnel of light we travel 
We're fading away 
Through the light that's shinning bright 
We're fading away 
Through the light that's shinning bright 
We're fading away


Mirror
(Denner / Diamond)

The girl in the mirror, she's not really there 
Only I can see her, in all her misery 

Chorus: 
The girl in the mirror, she's caught in a spell 
The girl in the mirror, between Heaven and Hell 
Can't you feel it, those haunting eyes 
She's so divine, could be magic of a kind 

Chorus 

Take a look in the mirror 
Deep inside there's a world of its own 
Take a look in the mirror 
See what you might find 
Try to reach my hand 
Try to reach through the glass... Try... Try... 
'Cause the longest journey is the one on your own 
If we break the mirror, do you think they'll let you go 

Chorus


The Afterlife
(Shermann / Diamond)

Why am I here, in a quiet mortuary 
A lady and man, flowers in their hands 
Nobody sees me, I don't understand 
Nobody hears me... 
Seems like I don't exist 
Seems like no one can hear me as I... Scream 
I do not feel the way I used to be 
Could it really be that the one I see is me 
You gotta tell why people come but never stay 
Could it really be that the one I see is me 
Does it really matter... Do you really care 
Why am I here, in a quiet mortuary 
Listen to the bell, calling my name 
Nobody sees, calling my name 
Nobody hears me...As I... Scream 
Why do I feel like I've been left behind 
Could it really be I'm in the afterlife 
You gotta tell me why I feel like I've been left behind 
Could it really be I'm in the afterlife 
Does it really matter... Do you really care 
Why do I feel like I've been left behind 
Could it really be I'm in the afterlife 
You gotta tell why people come but never stay 
Could it really be I'm in the afterlife 
Does it really matter... Do you really care


Castillo Del Mortes
(Shermann / Diamond)

Somewhere in ancient Spain
Close to what was BAECULA
There lay Castillo Del Mortes
To be known as "House of The Dead"
Oh no...oh not here
A fool was playing with magic
Magic he did not understand
He opened the unholy gates
Letting out the ancient ones from Hell
600 people standing on the castle walls
Screaming for mercy
Someone must have heard their calls
600 wondering what's going on
Two armies in the battle sky, forming and in battle line
Hear the battle cries
7 cohorts of angels, fighting for The Elders to win
7 cohorts of angels, fighting for the people within
The "House Of Dead" soon to be buried in sin
9 units of demons, The Ancient Ones command
9 units of demons, The Ancient Ones will stand
For the "House Of Dead" soon to be buried in sin
600 were watching in horror as they began to fight
None of the armies were using a weapon
As it is known to man
Demons and Angels were falling in numbers
Out of the burning sky...The burning sky
"Retreat, retreat" Oh the Angels flee
"Defeat, Defeat"
The battle is over, it's done
Somewhere in ancient Spain
Close to what was BAECULA
There lay the battleground
Where many an Angel was slain
9 units of demons, bringing unbearable sin
9 units of demons coming for the people within
The "House of The Dead"
Will soon live up to it's name
600 people running deep inside
600 people trying to hide
From The Ancient Ones...
But there's nowhere to run on this day
There is no need to speak of the horrible fate
Bestowed upon the 600 from BAECULA
